All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time
plays many parts . . .
The ninety-three pieces selected by curator Karsten Löckemann have been unified conceptually under the suggestive title All the World’s a Stage, a quote from William Shakespeare’s comedy As You Like It (1599), since all of the pieces ponder the influence of theatre and the performing arts on the plastic arts.
Through the different artistic mediums of contemporary art —photography, installations, sculpture, video and painting— the pieces show us the dialogue between the disciplines of performing and plastic arts. A visit to the exhibition is completed by workshops geared towards families, dynamic visits organised for schools and visits for groups with cognitive diversity.
